Abstract [en]

This report is a result of a master thesis work carried out at Metso Paper in Sundsvall. Metso Paper is a full scope supplier of pulping, papermaking and power generation technologies for the pulp and paper industry. Metso Paper Sundsvall is a part of the fiber business line. The aim of this project was to develop, and evaluate a concept for a new pulp feeding system to one of Metso's machines. This new system shall enable feeding with a higher pulp consistency, and require a lower pressure drop, compared to existing pulp feed systems. A pre-study was conducted to get acquainted with, and understand the problem. This study resulted in a number of goals and demands. After the pre-study concepts were generated, and evaluated, one was selected to continue working with. The selected concept was further evaluated through lab trials. The result from these trials showed that the concept has potential to fulfil most of the stated goals and demands.
